Summary:
      BRENNER TANK IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2011 TRAILERS MANUFACTURED FROM NOVEMBER 23, 2010, THROUGH FEBRUARY 25, 2011. DUE TO AN INCOMPLETE "KNITTING" OF THE IRON AT THE TIME OF CASTING, INADEQUATE STRUCTURAL INTEGRITY OF THE SLACK ADJUSTER HOUSING CAN OCCUR, WHICH COULD CAUSE THE HOUSING TO BREAK AT THE HANDLE UNDER NORMAL OPERATING LOADS.
Consequence:
      IF THE SLACK ADJUSTER HOUSING WERE TO BREAK, THE WHEEL BRAKE TO WHICH THE SLACK ADJUSTER IS ATTACHED WOULD NO LONGER FUNCTION, CAUSING THE VEHICLE TO HAVE REDUCED BRAKING CAPACITY AND, IF MOUNTED ON THE STEER AXLE, THE VEHICLE COULD PULL TO ONE SIDE, POSSIBLY RESULTING IN A CRASH.
Remedy:
      BRENNER TANK WILL NOTIFY OWNERS AND REPAIRS WILL BE MADE FREE OF CHARGE. THE SAFETY RECALL BEGAN ON APRIL 11, 2011. OWNERS MAY CONTACT BRENNER TANK AT 1-920-922-5020.
